About San Diego Stud Zygocactus

The zygo cactus comes from the jungles of Brazil. A legend passes down that a little boy was praying for relief from the heat of the jungle. Miraculously, on Christmas Day, this plant had beautiful blooms emerge off the stems and distract him from the sultry conditions. By enjoying the blooms, we can understand the reprieve from the stresses of life. Interestingly, the plant requires dormancy to promote bloom with 12-14 hours of darkness.

Some care is required.

Fun Facts

zygo cacti are epiphytes (they grow on top of other vegetation and rocks, not in the soil), so the roots must breathe.

In Europe, their name 'Crab Cactus' represents their stems looking like a crabs claws.
